The Words of the Mass are Changing
We need to start preparing for the new words and songs that we will be using at Mass starting November 27, 2011. Listen to this video to hear stories and understand how change affects teens. Use this video to spark discussion among young people in your parish regarding the change in the upcoming translation.
And with Your Spirit
The new words of the Mass are a closer translation to the original Latin Mass in language and meaning. Other languages like French, Spanish, and German also use words with similar meaning. Use this video to spark discussion among young people in your parish regarding the new words and their experiences of unity in the Church.
Why Do Words Matter?
We are reminded with this translation that the words of the Scripture are sacred and fundamental for our Church. Use this video to spark discussion among young people in your parish regarding using words that are similar to those of our ancestors in faith.
The Eucharist
The new translation allows us to easily connect to the scripture, especially during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. When we prepare to partake of the body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist, the words we hear and say will remind us of all that Jesus has done for his people. Use this video to spark discussion among young people in your parish regarding what the Eucharist means to them.
Wake Up!
With the new words during the Concluding Rites, we are reminded that Mass calls us to go forth and live its message in our lives. Use this video to spark discussion among young people in your parish regarding how the new words may help people “wake up” and actively participate at Mass.
